IATA Training virtual classroom courses provide a real-time instructor-led training environment where participants can interact, engage and collaborate in group assignments, with live sessions delivered by a highly qualified IATA Instructor.

Each day of the course will include live interactive virtual classroom sessions requiring your participation, multiple Q&A sessions and additional time spent on self-study material including projects, research, additional reading and videos.

Some courses include pre-course reading or assignments. Look out for an email from your Training Coordinator a week before the course start date with more details.
